Q&A with former Senator Wendy Davis

Former Texas state Senator Wendy Davis first gained national attention in 2013 when she filibustered a bill restricting access to women’s health care for 13 hours — without eating, drinking water or sitting down. Davis has been a women’s rights advocate throughout her political career as well as a champion of several progressive causes in Texas. This Monday, Davis addressed a packed Cemex Auditorium during a panel discussion on women in politics hosted by the Women’s Coalition. The Stanford Daily sat down with her to discuss politics and resilience in the face of defeat.
